“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.” —#RosalynnCarter. • It’s always a joy catching up with alumni and spending time with the protégés during @jump_nation’s JUMP Weekend. But running into @mr_vico_ and his students, while also rocking my @hollateamusa gear today, gave me so much joy. • Vic, you have been a great leader in the making since entering Binghamton during BEP and as a PC, and you are greater still. Watching you now on the other side excelling as a mentor, chaperone, teacher, coach was such an honor. Keep on making us proud! #Bearcats4Life #WeAreBinghamton #ForTheCulture

I tried very hard to wait until the legal process ran its course to make my judgements, well outside of the legal systems’ ability to solve crimes when a black man is the perpetrator and not so much when the black man is the victim, because so many aren’t ... but after viewing so many homophobic posts by people of color— I had this feeling that the attack was very real and Jussie would be vindicated. We still have so much work to do!
